About Deverell Smith

Deverell Smith are one of the UK’s leading real estate recruitment and executive search businesses. They partner with, often on an exclusive basis, many of the world’s leading property-related businesses.

Their ultimate aim is to be the recruiter of choice for the best in property and, within ten years, have an office on every continent.

Deverell Smith’s work is underpinned by the following core values, which all staff are expected to follow: honest, loyal, bold, determined, fun.

The company is led by Chief Executive Officer Andrew Deverell Smith, who has a 100% record of filling every executive search instruction he has ever taken on. His time is not reserved only for senior management, but for people at all levels of the business - whether you've been there for three weeks or three years, he's always approachable and happy to listen.
